“Wakahuia” are carved wooden containers made by Māori, where prized personal possessions are stored. In my painting I have placed the baby gannet next to the wakahuia as a symbol to show that our birdlife and environment are treasures to be looked after. Covered in seaweed, the bird looks bejewelled and regal. However it is climate change that has forced gannets to adapt to rising temperatures by cooling chicks with seaweed.
"Whakahuia" is a small limited edition run of 30 giclee prints on premium paper.
The image measure 61 x 45.7cm and has a 4cm border.
Archival inks are used that will last over 75+ years. The paper is Ilford Galerie Prestige watercolour paper, 100% cotton rag.
